    Revenge is so short-sighted. You see, the Universe looks so much further through time than the immature "Let's get back at them!" b.s.

    So... it's wrong to promote harm against one another here, but it's perfectly fine to promote harm here?

      I think something may be changing. I'm not sure if Mother nature is out for revenge but she may be, after all i'm sure entities as powerful as her can still get pissed . I do think that it may be signaling a change and it is approaching the Age of Aquarius and the end of the Mayan calendar so perhaps something mystical/supernatural is happening. I think some of the gods may be making a comeback into this realm since pagan religions are growing so maybe an apocalypse is on the way.

        Heheh... when you said "apocalypse", I thought of the hell from Constantine, heheh...

        I'm very curious as to waht 2011 or 2012 will bring... even if it's nothing, at least we keep on goin'. I don't think the world will end, I just think major changes may occur, like the veil breaking or something wild like that.

          Revenge is strictly a human concept. Nature has no need for revenge. The system is such that if we do to much to it, we end up killing ourselves. The system then repairs itself and keeps on going. Nature is a system. It doesn't care what we think or how we feel. It certainly doesn't give a damn who's on its "side." So what if you are? Guess what - you still die. Your demise is a part of nature's funcion. So is change. Earth is anything but fragile. We think we know it but we don't. Its age is so vast as to be totally off our perception scale, its operation so complex as to leave even those who spend their lives studying it baffled. The time we've been here is but an instant compared to the time life in general has been here. Disasters far greater than even we can conceive of have hit earth not once but many times - and every time it has survived. To think it won't survive us is not only wrong, it's arrogant. The changes hat are occuring are simply the system humming along as usual.
          "I would rather make the gravest of mistakes than surrender my own judgement." -- Cora Munroe in Last of the Mohicans

          "Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing." -- Conan the Barbarian in "Tower of the Elephant" by Robert E. Howard

          "Moral outrage has little effect on a cat." -- Garrison Keillor

          "There aren't many problems than can't be fixed
          with $700 and a .30-06." -- Jeff Cooper. Or maybe it was his daughter Lindy. I can't remember.

            Okay, look at it this way. In a couple billion years, mother nater knows it's all going to end when our sun goes supernova. Everything she's worked so hard to create...including us will be destroyed here. Now, if she could create a super race of highly intelligent beings, teach them how to care for themselves and use plants, animals, bacteria around them, they may find a way to survive. Why would she punish us for doing what we're naturally disposed to do in the first place?

            We are curious. We fiddle with everything. We are intelligent. We are wise. We are diverse. We love to exlore new fronteirs (whether knowledge or places).

            We were created this way on purpose. To continue her (or some gods) work. To destroy us now would lose all of the progress we've made. It would be very counter productive. Without us, earth won't stand a chance when the sun envelopes the first four planets in our solar system. With us, we may do nifty things like recreate the "arc" story and spread earths seed to a million other planets. Our mathemeticians may find ways to transport us to new universes all together. The possibilities are amazing!

            Grrr...Mooo.



            Artist= what someone with no musical talent calls themselves now days.
            Sampling= what "artists" do when they steal good songs and call it their own.

              Umm, I think you're missing the point... Nature is not going to be upset because everything she worked so hard for eventually ends. Her heart doesn't pour out infinite sadness. She doesn't punish the species for taking certain actions. In fact, punishment is strictly a human concept. She could care less about how intelligent or moronic we are. She doesn't care if we spread to the stars or die from our own stupidity. She's not punishing us. These diseases, hurricanes, tsunamis, meteor strikes, massive earthquakes are NOT punishment. It's just her natural course. Yeah, disasters are bad, but Nature is amoral... only humans (as far as this solar system is concerned) believe in good and bad and other moral concepts. Nature doesn't whip us with tornadoes when we're bad, and she certainly doesn't pat us on the back with rainbows and butterflies when we're good.

              Nature just is. She isn't good. She isn't bad. She's not an arbitrary parent. She can be accepted as a God or Goddess, but she should not be warped into something she isn't. There's gonna be storms and death right alongside those bunnies and butterflies.

              We are curious. We fiddle with everything. We are intelligent. We are wise. We are diverse. We love to exlore new fronteirs (whether knowledge or places).
              I think that while we may have some grain of intelligence, we have little wisdom. Yes, we have great philosophers, leaders, and pioneers of human thought... they are pinnacles of wisdom among humankind. But the rest of us are merely fledgelings, too wrapped up in playing with our collective balls rather than awakening or being aware of the greater worlds around us.

              We were created this way on purpose. To continue her (or some gods) work. To destroy us now would lose all of the progress we've made. It would be very counter productive.

              That's the most arrogant, yet entertaining, thing I've read all night.
              Your beliefs are valid, but I find that saying the whole world won't last without humanity is extremely laughable. The Earth is not supposed to last forever, and neither are we. Concerning continuing Her "work", she does that just fine on her own. She doesn't need us to hold her hand, especially when we, as a species, cannot get our heads out of our asses.

              If we were destroyed, yeah, we'd lose all of our progress. The same thing happens to any species that dies, so it's common knowledge. Nature, the Universe, is indifferent to our destruction. Yes, the Universe has certain infinities of plans for humanity. If we get wiped out, will the Universe collapse or mourn our demise? No. The Universe will continue, and has many more ways to accomplish what It intends. The only sadness for the death of humanity will be from ourselves, knowing our demise is immanent (sp?).

              As dark as this sounds, it's normal. If an unimportant species of bacteria were to die, I wouldn't even give it a second thought. Likewise, we don't even have the lifespan or significance of gnats compared to the Universe's plans and lifetime.
